EVENT: Sundaise Festival (6-8 March)
The Solar Stage is fully powered by the sun, and hosts a diverse mix of bands, DJs, yoga and workshops (It’s also the perfect chill zone). For those who don’t want to stop, race off ‘The Red Lounge’ and party until dawn with some of NZ’s best DJ’s and Producers (such as R.I.A and Isaac Aesili) with vivid projections and light shows for you night owls.
SUNDAISE hails back to a traditional Kiwi feel, a festival without the boundaries of commercial interest. No need for bars with expensive drinks as its hosted on private land and the event is glass free, BYO with lots of delicious helathy food stalls.
Another aspect of SUNDAISE is our commitment to sustainability and setting new standards in festival waste. The last festival saw only 1 wheelie bin full of landfill with 1250 people on site and this year we aim to decrease the amount of waste even further.
“As recent finalists in the New Zealand National Sustainability Network Business Awards, the festival team are looking to further reduce the impact of the festival on the land and environment”.
Rachel Sorley – Sustainability Manager
SUNDAISE has acres of beautiful free camping and is framed by the Waitawheta River. The surrounding area is D.O.C land and there are many great short walks tunnels and water holes for you to explore.
